Effects of magnetic fields on the pineal gland and the production of melatonin.

A negative magnetic field can influence many biochemical processes with in the body that directly relate to maintaining proper sleep patterns. The pineal gland, which is a magnetic organ, is sensitive to magnetic fields. Negative magnetic fields can help reverse changes in the body'sí circadian rhythm by stimulating the pineal gland. Magnetic field therapy is very effective in treating and preventing all types of sleep disorders. The following are general guidelines for the use of magnetic therapy to treat insomnia:

1. Sleep on a magnetic bed pad composed of tiny negative magnets placed sufficiently close together to provide a full negative magnetic field. Exposure to the magnetic bed pad serves to increase melatonin production inside the intestinal tract. The intestinal tract can also be stimulated to produce melatonin by placing a negative magnetic wrap around the abdomen.

2. Sleeping with your head surrounded by a negative magnetic field is even more effective in producing sound sleep than a magnetic bed pad. Place small negative magnets close together inside you pillow. The top of the head be as close as possible to the magnets.

Researchers have generated a great deal of scientific information about the hormone melatonin. Several studies have shown the benefits of increasing melatonin levels to reverse insomnia as well as preventing the signs of aging.

There is a concern that supplementing melatonin with synthetic melatonin replacement may suppress the normal production of the hormone made by the pineal gland. Given the potential problems associated with supplementing synthetic melatonin the focus should be on stimulating the body to produce the hormone naturally.

A negative magnetic field will stimulate the pineal gland , the retina of the eye and also the intestinal tract to produce melatonin. Treating the brain with a negative magnetic field produces energy-restoring deep sleep and all the healing benefits of melatonin.

How to use magnetic field therapy to increase melatonin levels.

As previously discussed the pineal gland needs stimulation by a negative magnetic field. These can be applied in a variety of ways. The application of individual magnets to the head , face or neck requires specialist knowledge to ensure the magnetic field is of sufficient strength and the magnets are placed were they will stimulate the pineal gland. An easier option is to attach magnets to your headboard or to the inside of your pillow. When attaching magnets to the head board careful attention must be given to the height of the magnets and the distance between each magnet the height and distance is relative to the individual strength of each magnet and to the sleeping position of the person. Magnets can be placed inside your pillow case these need to be placed in the same format as with the headboard placement.

It can be difficult to calculate the positioning and strength of magnets required to stimulate the pineal gland adequately. To alleviate this problem special negative field magnetic pillows have been designed. They have had the amount , strength and placement calculated and the magnets are fixed into position so they will not deviate from their position. The pillow is inserted into your pillow case on top of your existing pillow. The magnets will have contact with the top of the head through out the night.
